La Dolce Vita: Positano Beach Day

I have been meaning to post the last leg of our Italy trip for some time and with how busy life has been lately, I have really been missing la dolce vita (the good life)!  After almost 15 days in Italy, ending our trip sunbathing on the Amalfi Coast was a brilliant idea and I applaud Kevin and I for planning it so. With all of the moving around from city to city we decided to spend an entire day in Positano beaching it up (life was really rough back then)… read more

Dinner in Amalfi

Kevin and I had a budget set before we left to Italy.  But once we got there (and got engaged!), we blew through it, especially on food.  Each city has an entirely different cuisine and style of cooking and we wanted to make sure we ate and experienced it all.  There is something about eating a meal authentic to the region that makes you feel more connected to it.  Obviously, when we got to the Amalfi coast it was no different.  I really do try not to take food pictures in restaurants, and promised Kevin that I only would if the meal was really, really good.  This meal was no exception so feast your eyes on the most delicious meal we ate in the Amalfi Coast! read more

Paradise Found: Nocelle, Italy

We ended our Italian holiday on the Amalfi Coast.  Our train ride from Rome was an adventure in itself and if we had planned it differently we could have taken a few tourist stops on the way.  However, this being the last leg of our trip, we were ready to just have a few drinks and relax on the beach.   The train takes you through Naples, Pompeii- with views of Mt.Vesuvius, and finally arriving at the beautiful Amalfi Coast.  We took a ride up to Nocelle on our first night to catch the sunset.  Nocelle is a quiet little village nestled up in the mountainside and it overlooks the entire coastline.  It certainly has the most spectacular views and didn’t disappoint!  We took in the sunset and headed off to dinner down the cliffside in Positano.  Don’t you just wish vacation life was real? read more
